The Heart's Journey from Barbara Cameron is the second book in t
The Heart's Journey from Barbara Cameron is the second book in the Stitches in Time Series, and one that everyone can relate to and a true delight if you're a fan of Amish fiction. In this one, the reader is once again transported to the charm of a delightful store, Stitches in Time operated by Leah and her grand-daughters whom we have met in her first book. This time the story deals with her granddaughter, Naomi who is wondering if her upcoming marriage to John is truly what God had in mind. It seems that John is taking his authority of being the man of the house to heart and tries to ensure that Naomi will obey him at all costs, even if it means man-handling her at times. No matter how hard Naomi tries to put on her best smile, however, her grandmother Leah can see right through it.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

When she confronts Naomi about the relationship, she finally tells her the truth and that John is more than controlling. In fact, he has already hurt her physically but believes he can change, especially after how sorry he felt. Leah reminds Naomi that in the Amish world, once you marry the only way you can get out of a bad marriage is for one of you to die. That hits too close for home for Naomi and she agrees with Leah that perhaps they should break up. When Leah takes a nasty fall just outside of her shop, their Englisch driver, Nick comes to take her to the doctor. It is then that Naomi realizes that not all men can be as controlling as John and sees the true heart that lies within Nick.
Opportunity presents itself to head to Pinecraft, Florida with her grandmother to help her pass the time recovering from her fall where the climate is warm and oranges are as close as an arm's reach. Naomi is more than delighted when Nick offers to drive them from Paradise, Pennsylvania to Florida for a mini vacation and both Naomi and Nick discover that something is brewing beneath the surface for them both. However will they be able to find common ground with living in two different worlds or will John find Naomi and bring her back to her senses in more ways than one?
I received The Heart's Journey compliments of Abingdon Press and Pump Up Your Book Tours for my honest review and love the blending of the two worlds in the Amish fiction. Barbara Cameron takes the issue of abuse to a new level introducing it to her Amish character and then inviting the reader along for the ride to see how the Amish might deal with such an issue in their private world. I rate this one a 5 out of 5 stars in my opinion and can't wait for the third book in this series!!!

Naomi has mixed feelings regarding her upcoming marriage to John
Naomi has mixed feelings regarding her upcoming marriage to John. His controlling ways have her backing away from the relationship. When her grandmother needs a traveling companion to Florida, Naomi volunteers to go along, but she never planned on a mutual attraction developing between her and their Englisch driver.Was this review helpful?

Barbara Cameron has written an Amish fiction novel with a new twist: domestic abuse. As much as we would like to believe that they live in an idyllic paradise, they have problems just as everyone else does. This is a topic that needs to be addressed in general Christian fiction more often, so finding it in this genre was definitely a breath of fresh air. It was handled sensitively, giving the reader real information in a fictional format. Very nicely done. I will be looking for Ms. Cameron's novels at my local bookstore.
